TLS as president, one page, 6.75 x 9, White House letterhead, December 27, 1968. Letter to James Webb at NASA. In full: “It was very thoughtful and kind of you to send me a note just before the Apollo launch. I have never been more proud of American scientific accomplishments than I am today. Ours has been a remarkable achievement. Thank you for sending me the reading materials about Apollo. I had a chance to go through them just before the launch. I am delighted by your offer to help at the University, and I expect to call on you often. We’re looking forward to having you visit us and be with us.” In fine condition, with a couple of paperclip impressions to top edge and some light mirroring of text. Webb served as the second administrator of NASA, guiding the agency through the Apollo program. In 1969, Johnson presented Webb with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
